Stylish, Yes?

*gasp* Two posts in a day? Why, this is shocking! Yes, I know. However, a blog is for verbal vomit at times, and I have some mental drivel that needs to be flushed out before I can sleep.

We speak of a writer’s style. You can tell writers by their styles; it’s sort of like a writing fingerprint, except that there is more than one author to a style. But more or less, if I read a piece by Jane Austen or Edgar Allan Poe, I’m going to know it’s them, regardless of whether or not someone tells me.

But I have a dilemma. What is my style? Do I have a style? I know of several, in fact. I will give you a few examples.

The Teen-age Girl
I totally just slammed my funny bone. Ow. Who the heck named this thing??? It feels like a freaking electric current is, like, running up my arm.

The Contemporary
I didn’t know what to think. Was he messing with my head? Did he want me to be mad at him every hour of the day? Because if that was his goal, he was sure as heck achieving it.

The Diplomat
See post content.

The “Pooped”
i’m rEally tied. Im sitting here writng a story but I know I won’ t be able ro rad anyof it.uhg.

I know different writing calls for a different style. But how do you realize what your style is, the one that is your writing fingerprint? And what if your style matches that of an 18th century professor in tweed or a circus clown, when you’re actually an 18 year-old girl? Or am I over thinking this?
